Every year, people get extra excited as Christmas approaches. The holiday is always associated with joy, family, warmth, coziness, delicious food, toys, sweaters, presents..and the list goes on and on.
Yet, we all have our own personal view of Christmas, our own story, our own way in which we relate to it.
While some think of eggnog the moment Christmas is mentioned, others already listen to a carol in their head..and many, including myself, have a favorite Christmas movie on mind.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is one of the most well-known and most quoted Christmas movies of all time. It originated from a short story by writer John Hughes called “Christmas ’59”, published in the December 1980 issue of National Lampoon magazine.
